The 195.36.24/amd64 driver gives me no additional problems over 
195.36.15 (current version in port) for a GeForce 8800 GTS.  I see no 
195.36.31 for amd64 available from nVidia.

Since the amd64 versions were beta until the 256 series, Zander was 
blessing us--thank you!--with releases of it.  [1]
